OPODIS is an open forum for the exchange of knowledge on distributed computing and distributed computer systems. All aspects of distributed systems are within the scope of OPODIS, including theory, specification, design, performance, and system building. With strong roots in the theory of distributed systems, OPODIS covers nowadays the whole range between the theoretical aspects and practical implementations of distributed systems, as well as experimentation and quantitative assessments.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Algorithms for distributed systems (static or dynamic) and their complexity;
- Cluster, cloud, grid and high-performance computing;
- Distributed operating systems, middleware, and database systems;
- Communication networks (protocols, architectures, services, applications);
- Cryptographic protocols and security mechanisms;
- Fault tolerance, reliability, availability;
- Internet applications, social systems, peer-to-peer and overlay networks;
- Self-* solutions for distributed systems;
- Mobile and wireless computing and sensor networks;
- Mobile agents and autonomous robots.
